What's Worse?

    what's worse:
    being alone
    or
    thinking your alone when your not?
  2. D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Probably the former... or at least, there's all these psychological studies that suggest that single people, or people who live alone otherwise, die sooner than people who are married or have some form of companionship.

    The latter on the other hand, that could be a whole other problem altgoether. I mean if you think you're alone when you're not, I guess that probably means someone you are with isn't making any kind of effort to at least keep the friendship, companionship, relationship, marriage, etc. going strong, and believe me, there's a few people in my life I wonder why I'm friends with.

    For me it's definitely being alone. Even though I'm married it still worries me what if I really will be alone someday? I know it's stupid to think about but it's probably one of the biggest fears in life I have.
  4. D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    I don't know how stupid it is, it seems like being alone is a rather common fear that a lot of people have... or at least, it seems like a lot of people drop to their knees and cry out into the void of their dispair, "I don't wanna die aloooooooone!!!"

    But I mean, hasn't Lady Gaga said something along the lines of she has to have someone in a room with her at all times because she's that scared of being alone?
  5. Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    I think for me it's a fear of not being loved or needed anymore.

    "We all die alone and afraid, Joel."

    I used to be afraid of it. Now I'd relish it. I hate living with other people. And, really, all of us ARE already alone in our heads and always will be. Just accept it and move on. Even the most intimate companionship is still not a mind-meld; we are all alone. Period.

    That shouldn't be a downer, folks. It's just reality.

    I'll go with "being alone". I've done that for eight years in an apartment. Alot of times I wish there was another person to help over somethings.

    I like being alone a lot of the time; it gives me space to breathe and not have to worry about the actions of others (especially my family :smirk:). However, there are plenty of times where I wish I had a good friend close by for support. It's a situational thing for me.

    I think I have to agree with Charlie's sentiments... I'm usually something of a loner myself, I think it has something to do with not too many others wanting to hang out with me growing up (let's face it, even as a kid, I was too eccentric for my own good), so I've learned to adjust to basically having to be on my own, in a sense, like with group projects in school, I was always the one who wasn't allowed to have any input in the project for whatever reason, so yeah, I'm used to be brushed aside, and sometimes, I still feel like some of my friends do that to me as well. I do believe that actual friendship still exists, it's just become something of a rarity in this day and age.

    And likewise, like Charlie said, there are some times where I actually would prefer to have someone there, even just to have someone to talk to, and it never fails whenever those moments spring up, my best friend seems to always sense it, because she'll be available for a talk... likewise, apparently I usually turn up available when she has similar little episodes.

    the whole question was because I was alone in my house which is a friggin fossil, and I kept hearing noises.
    I thought I was alone
    but I wasnt sure...
    but both ways to interpret it work!
    I love philosophy!
  11. D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Well see, you didn't say that, so we wouldn't know that's what you meant by your question, we were interpreting it as something different.

    I think it all depends on context. For instance, if you think you're alone, but there's actually a burglar in the house, then that would be worse, lol.

    It wasn't me, you can't prove anything! I mean...uh...

    But seriously, old houses creak and stuff. And then there is the whole EMF thing that can actually cause you to feel as if someone else is there with you. Yay, science! XD
  16. D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Ah, but I SAW the ghost who kept visiting me a few years ago... how does science explain that?
  17. Sgt Floyd Well-Known Member

    I would need more information than that to determine possible causes :p

    But actually, I do believe that ghosts exist.

    I mean I try to believe that people continue to exist after they die, so if we want to call that ghosts that's fine. But I think the majority of so-called ghost sightings (i.e. those ghost hunter shows) are hoaxes or just honest mistakes.
  19. Sgt Floyd Well-Known Member

    Well, yeah. I'm not one of those people to jump to the conclusion something is a ghost without exploring the natural possibilities of what could have caused it. Probably why I like Ghost Hunters as they tend to try to debunk ghost sightings, while still keeping a relatively open mind that *something* could be going on.
  20. D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Excuse me, I'm sorry. I meant to say spirit.
